City Per Capita Value
$428, Tax, $7.73
The tax base of Oregon cities, tak
en as a whole, increased for the
current year over the past year for
the first time since 1931, a report
just issued by the Bureau of Muni
cipal Research of the University of
Although this total assessed valu
ation for 1936 is above that of 1937,
it is still below that of 1936 and
previous years, the report states.
The figures given in the report
for Heppner are as follows: Popu
lation, , 1190; assessed valuation of
1937 for 1938, $692,057; city tax levy
for 1938 in mills, 13.3; amount of city
tax, $9,204.36; per capita' city tax,
$7.73; county assessment ratio, 68
per cent; assessed valuation on 50
per cent basis, $508,865; assessed val
ue per capita on 50 per cent basis,
$428; city tax rate in mills on 50
per cent basis, $18.09.
Nine incorporated cities, all but
one, Fossil, under 500 population,
will get through the year with no
city tax at all. The other eight are
Antelope, Cornucopia, Granite, Jun
tura, Lonerock, Mitchell, Orenco
Placing all cities on a uniform
valuation basis of 50 per cent, Ore
gon City has the lowest millage
charge for cities over 500 popula
tion. Millage on a 50 per cent basis
would be $16.13, although the actual
levy per capita, on the 46 per cent
valuation of its county is 18.4. The
lowest actual millage is claimed by
Pendleton, with 13.3, but this is
made on a county valuation millage
rate of 68 per cent, making the uni
form 50 per cent rate at 18.09, or
second to Oregon City.
Dallas, on the uniform 50 per cent
basis, rates lowest in the group of
2500-5000 population, with a millage
of 15.75. Bandon, on the uniform
basis, is low in the 1000-2500 class,
with 5.98, and retains this position
in actual millage, with 4.6 mills.
Using the 1930 population as a
basis for determining the per capita
tax, Bend and Oregon City, both
with city" manager forms of govern
ment, are low with cities of 5000
or over population. Their per cap
ita taxes are $10.05 for Bend and
$11.41 for Oregon City. Dallas, with
$7.04, and St. Helens with $7.43 per
capita are lowest in the 2500-5000
classification. Bandon with only 93
cents per capita is low in the 1000
to 2500 class.
Mrs. George French who expect
ed to leave for her home in Wyom
ing has had a bad cold and will have
to remain at least a week longer.
